Agnountos Monastery

Last spring, on the way to Ancient Epidavros, we stopped for probably no more than half an hour at this oasis on the side of the road. I had arrived in Greece from Edinburgh a few days earlier, in preparation for a month of dissertation research. Sun-deprived and stressed, this excursion brightened my spirits. From the rainy grey of April in Scotland, this little monastery with its colourful signs of spring seemed like a magical apparition. Today it’s raining in Athens, so I thought this was an appropriate reminder of what is to come when the clouds clear. (Also, don’t miss the nun in the final photo!)
